Positive Ageing Week - October 1-7 2023

Positive Ageing Week 2023 1-7 October

At Age Action, we are thrilled to announce the return of Positive Aging Week (PAW) for 2023. Every year, this event holds a special place in our hearts, emphasising the positive aspects of aging and celebrating the invaluable contributions of older individuals in our communities.

Positive Ageing Week (PAW) is an Age Action initiative to promote the agency of older people and to celebrate the contribution they make to our families, workplaces, communities and society as a whole. For 20 years individuals, groups, local authorities and businesses have been organising events to mark PAW.

About Positive Ageing Week 2023

The theme of PAW 2023 will be Challenging Ageism- Reframing How We Think, Feel and Act towards aging and older persons.  

PAW also marks United Nations International Day of Older Persons on 1 October the theme for which is ‘“Resilience of Older Persons in a Changing World”

Age Action will be announcing details of events to mark the day in the coming weeks.


Organising an Event?

Anyone and everyone can participate in PAW. We encourage community-based events, organised by groups or individuals as well as national events, in partnership with Age Action or not, to reflect the diversity of experience and situation of older people.

Age Action encourages organisers of events to register them on the dedicated PAW website
